Barnes and Noble Events - November 2014

Last night I had the pleasure of attending an event at Barnes & Noble, the bookstore, one of my favorite places to go and wander through. When was the last time you took the afternoon and just perused books, looked at new recipes and saw what kind of games were new in the world of family fun night?

It’s been a while huh? How about going this weekend?

Barnes and Noble is having a Discovery weekend for November 21-23, 2014.

Friday, Nov 21;
7pm: Linkee Trivia Tournament: Linkee is a super-simple, shouty-out quiz game with a twist: you don’t win by answering the questions, but by working out what the answers have in common!
For example, if the answers were John, Paul, George and Ringo, the Linkee would be, The Beatles. Easy, right?
* Recommended for ages 14 and up but having a cheering squad of younger kids would be great!

Saturday, Nov 22;
10am: Create with ArtFolds This ArtFolds book is more than just a book! Inside are simple instructions that show readers how to fold pages to transform this book into a beautiful, personal, and long-lasting work of art, as the pages evolve into a colorful HEART sculpture.* Recommended for ages 13 and up (Please call your Barnes and Noble in advance for space and availability, perhaps they will have a sign up sheet)
